Why go there
You’ll find the thrill of climbing the steel arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is matched only by the sublime views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline from the top.
Made famous for its starring roles in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and the annual New Years’ Eve fireworks, the bridge is at the heart of your Sydney visit.
This is a bridge that loves a party. 200,000 people walked across it to celebrate the bridge’s 75th birthday in 2007.
Top of your list of things to do in and around the bridge is the exciting BridgeClimb.
You’ll soon see why more than 2 million happy climbers have made their way along catwalks, up ladders and to the top. 360 degree views from the summit are spectacular – with the Opera House in the foreground, the Royal Botanic Gardens nearby, city skyline close, beaches and mountains in the distance.
BridgeClimb Sydney now offers two Climbs. The Bridge Climb and the Discovery Climb. The Discovery Climb gives you an insider’s view of the structure of the bridge as you climb your way to the summit.
You may prefer walking across the bridge at your own pace or joining a guided bicycle tour that includes an easy ride across the bridge.
From nearby Circular Quay, you can catch a ferry that glides past the bridge or a Rivercat that passes directly beneath this elegant structure.
Charter a yacht or take a learn-to-sail course from Darling Harbour and you’re certain to have the bridge in your sights for most of the journey.
